I'm tackling this problem again after months of just letting it sit. There is a problem with battery recognition. I can't unplug the computer, that just turns it off. Checking power options shows there is no battery installed even though there is. If you have a solution, it would be greatly appreciated. Donnie

Re: The battery is not recognized
There probably is a short circuit inside the battery pack or it might be fault in your laptop. You can try cleaning the battery terminals but there's not much you can do. The best thing to do is send it back to your retailer or SONY to get warranty if within 1 year or pay to get it fixed.

Remove the battery before you plug in the charger/adapter and see what it will do. It can't recognize a battery mode if there is no battery. Maybe the charger you are using is not appropriate: different voltage, wrong polarity, the tip is not in contact with the plug terminals, or the circuit is not closed to allow the passage of current.
Rocketfish, Targus , and a few others, manufacture universal chargers that work with may laptop makes and models.
yes this model supports face recognition software, you must have software installed already, facial recognition software, click on windows logo (Start button) and go to all programs, and find Facial Recognition or similar.
I've had similar problems with wireless cards refusing to turn their light blue until the driver was updated via windows update. Obviously I had to do this using a wired connection. Try connectiing with a wired connection and udating until windows update tell you everything is up to date then restart your laptop and wait for about 5 minutes before you press the on/off button on your wireless. You can also try removing the wireless card (physically I mean) rebooting, shutting down and replacing the card then rebooting again. If you know anybody that has the same kind of laptop ask if you can try their wireless card to see if it's a fault with that. Sorry I can't help more.
you might have run the battery too low, or it might be disconnected. try just letting the laptop sit plugged in for awhile, with the battery out to charge the machine, and to let the battery cool down. Then reinsert the battery and let that charge for a little bit and try again.
Either that or you might have dropped it or let it get too hot. If it's too hot, let it cool down. If you dropped it, take it to a tech, a wire might be loose.
This can be from a number of things. 1rst, is the drive showing as disabled in your bios? If not, with laptop powered off, then try unplugging the dc adapter and removing the battery. remove the hard drive. Let the computer sit for a few minutes.replace the battery but do not plug the dc jack back in. boot the computer without the hard drive and let it go to the point of failing boot with no hard drive.
Power off. hold down the power button and let it cycle power (goes on then off) remove battery and replace hard drive. try to boot and see if this will allow your hard drive to recognize. If this doesnt work then repost and can go from there
Take out the battery and disconnect the power supply. Let the laptop
sit for a couple of minutes. Attach just the power supply and try to
start the system. If this doesn't work, disconnect the power supply,
let the system sit for a couple more minutes, insert the battery, and
try again. If neither of these steps work, look for a reset switch
somewhere on the machine. They usually are little pinholes on the
bottom of the machine. If you find one, depress it for about ten
seconds and try the above steps again.
try to update your bios for your dell laptop. go to support.dell.com and click on the drivers and utilities image. place in your service tag. on the drivers list... look for bios. download the bios update and run it. it would restart the computer. make sure that you wait for it to return to windows. do not turn off the system while its updating the bios.
